After COVID concerns canceled Oklahoma State’s tri-meeting with West Virginia and Columbia, the Cowboys have found a way to not get less of an in-and-home dual.
Oklahoma State will wrestle Columbia on Sunday at the Gallagher-Iba Arena. as first reported by Adam Engel. The dual begins at 2:00 p.m. and no tickets are required for entry. Unfortunately, the dual is not streamed.
The Cowboys are 8-0 in doubles this season after beating Little Rock 35-6 last weekend. Columbia is 1-1 and earned a dominant 46-0 win over LIU. The Lions wrestle Lehigh Friday night.
The Lions have a quartet of ranked wrestlers who could provide good tests for the Cowboys this weekend.
There will most likely be a 125lb ranked match between No.6 Trevor Mastrogiovanni and No.20 Joe Manchio. At 149, No. 22 Joshua Ogunsanya should provide a good test for No. 14 Kaden Gfeller, as should No. 19 Matt Kazimir for No. 18 Carter Young at 141 pounds. Colombia’s 157-pounder Kyler Mosher is also 29th at the InterMat. Wyatt Sheets ranks 13th with 157 according to InterMat.
This will be the first time Oklahoma State and Columbia will meet in a double frame.
